“On tops of mountains, as everywhere to hopeful souls, it is always morning.”
~Henry David Thoreau

above mountain peaks

they emerge through morning mist

Solis and Luna


orbs in reflection

silver and gold juxtaposed

silent submission


warm rays commingle

we feel our souls drawn to them

bathed pure in luster


within this moment

our eyes meet them together

we are like they are


lying side by side

malachite affirmation

in cadence immersed


destinies entwined

through centuries now long past

project our future


we remain steadfast

sweltry beams shared between two

in dawn’s soft ménage



Taylor Ryan and Butch Howard

Magnetic and yet beautifully poised and weighted. Such elegance woven into this planetary romance. It seems to place my thought and feelings onto a cusp, and yet causes them also to relax as if into a feather-bed. This is the stuff of sighs! :)) Thank you both... a wonderful tandem write that runs smooth and well-oiled, Kate xx

What a privelege it is to have the opportunity to read a poem like this collaboration with you, Taylor, and you Butch. The mention of Solis and Luna made me smile -- and these lines are so moving: "we remain steadfast sweltry beams shared between two in dawn’s soft ménage" This is pure romance at its finest, my friends. Simply put, 'a feel good' blend of ink. Love, Katherine

Your collabs are outstanding
Thanks for sharing

Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 4/26/2007
The proper response to this Haiku/Senryu is that there is a beautiful balance growing out from the green shoots rising out of ancient wood. This is a soulful communion shared between two souls who I see want to not only deepen their impressionistic style of poetry to share with their readers, but also deepen their commitment with each other, bonding through the written word...this is art and it tells the truth of the day...integrating poetry from two minds, one soul...Blessed Be.
